There is no one reason why buildings and structures get damaged. The job of a forensic structural engineer is to determine whether the cause was an inadequate initial design, poor construction of the building, plumbing problems, or natural events like fires or earthquakes. In the insurance claim handling process, everyone involved- from the insurer to the property owner- must understand the proximate cause of damage. However, this cause can only be determined by a thorough forensic structural engineering inspection, carried out by our highly trained professionals in the forensic structural engineering field based in Melbourne.

At MFS Engineering, all of our engineers have years of experience working with the Australian Insurance industry and loss adjusters as forensic experts. They have helped these industries determine liability and settle disputes by providing them with high-quality, simplified building inspection reports and structural investigation reports that objectively outline the cause(s) of structural failure. MFS Engineering provides the following services to Insurers, Loss Adjusters and Building Consultants:
